Earth Day is today and across the globe we celebrate Mother Nature and are striving to find ways to better the earth. In 1970 Earth Day was celebrated for the very first time as a national holiday. Even after 45 years we are still encountering various environmental issues, excessive pollution, resource depletion, and climate change to name a few. We are making huge strides in protecting the earth however, the impact on the earth has not been big enough. Countries need to make Earth Day more than one day and start encouraging it as a lifestyle to live clean and protect the beautiful earth we live on.
